    I have been working at Affinity Federal Credit Union full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, autonomy, and support.

    Untraditional in operations versus other financial institutions. Most processes are manual and involve more steps than the competition.

    Create clearer lines of communication and increase accountability throughout the organization.

    I worked at Affinity Federal Credit Union full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits
    PTO
    Management is fair, however upper management needs more leadership

    Cons

    Chances for advancement are slim
    Systems are outdated

    Advice to Management

    Unless you work in their corporate headquarters, any advancement is near impossible. I would recommend this position for anyone that needs a job with no expectations of advancement.

    I worked at Affinity Federal Credit Union full-time

    Pros

    Diversity in the workplace, room for growth, great benefits.

    Cons

    Retail branches get different attention and recognition based on demographics, the further away the branches are, the more underappreciated and disconnected they may feel.

    Advice to Management

    Deal with staff conflicts directly and without bias. Not doing so created a very uncomfortable environment during my last few moths at AFCU.

    Pros

    Unlike Bigger Business Corporations you actually feel of value with this company. You have direct access to everyone higher up and had frequent meetings with them during luncheons to talk about the company and what can can be improved.

    Cons

    none that i can think of.

    Pros

    Amazing benefits and mission. Executive Leadership truly cares about the lives of employees. They even know your name! When you show potential and drive, they will put you on a fast track to success! I would be considered a newer employee with 2 years plus experience and received amazing opportunities.

    Cons

    Systems can be tricky to work with. Wish they were a little easier. But every institution has their quirks with systems.

    Advice to Management

    More branch locations, please!
